I liked being disconnected. I'm somewhat of an introvert (but I can put on a mean extrovert suit when feeling up for it) so it made being a hermie that much easier.
But today, while I sat through Jack's preschool orientation, and yesterday's soccer orientation, I realized that I'm shutting a lot of people out. I'm limiting the ways people can reach me.
The thought of Jack being in someone else's care and limiting their resources to contact me- upsets me.
And the older he gets, the more I'm going to lean on technology to calm my fears and keep us connected.
Why am I fighting this?
I started a new facebook account. A fresh start with a new perspective.
Facebook is for fun, not to be taken so seriously. I need to realize that people sharing their problems on the world wide web is not my responsibility to fix. Crazies? Ignore!
It's like having this giant family and while getting together can cause a bit of drama, in the end it's totally worth it.
I think we're coming back to the twentieth century.
